Boutis

As much as I loved all the color and patterns of the Starpatch quilts on display in Laguepie, these small boutis  pieces really took my breath away. The stitching and designs were exquisite. Also known as Provencal quilting, boutis quilts feature two pieces of fabric with a whisper-thin layer of stuffing in between. With stitching, the design becomes raised and visible. There's no room for error here...no pattern or color to hide an uneven line or a missed stitch. Lovely!
